Do Penistone and Stocksbridge residents know where their Parliamentary (ie MP) election candidates stand on important environmental issues?

General election candidates will be quizzed by the people of Penistone and Stocksbridge at a Green Question Time on Friday 10th April at 7.00pm (doors open at 6.30 pm).

This free event is being organised by Penistone Friends of the Earth at St Andrews Church Hall, High St, Penistone (next to the library)

The group held a similar event in the run-up to the 2010 General Election which was very well attended, with challenging questions from the audience. It gave residents more information about how different parties would act on environmental issues and what candidates would do locally to protect the environment.

The Green Question Time is open to everyone, and the chair will take questions on the night. Or, for those who cannot make it, questions can be emailed to [email protected] The chair will be Paul Bridges, a member of the St Andrews Congregation.
